Why put 0 in defiance? Defiance is a synergy for holy shield. IMO this would a good idea to improve defense bonus from HS.Nathanjk said:I disagree. I would put 0 in defiance and level up holy shield to taste and put 1 point in conviction and 1 point in vengenge for PI's. Also if you can get good resists I would put some points in resist lightning to get the extra 1 max lightning resist per two levels. Lightning kills me more than anything in hell. 1 point in vigor is a must and you will love it while redemptions helps as well althought with a decent amount of leach it isn't necessary.
I agree. Defiance is an excellent skill to max. With Templar's, Herald, and COT, my zealot has 20K defense. Monsters in hell have about a 25% chance to hit me, and since max Holy Shield almost guarantees 75% blocking, with good equip you'll do greatly with that setup. That defense can also be further increased with an Exile shield or Defiance merc.BadBen said:Why put 0 in defiance? Defiance is a synergy for holy shield.
